    by the way....isn't a stock YZ450F about 8,000 MSRP. if so, RSD is asking that much for the full prep and upgraded wheels, brakes, and suspension.

    In theory they'd be great.

    I don't think that even if you started w/a used 450 and take off streetbike suspension you could do it for less than half of what RS gets so I'm not saying his price is crazy.

    The real problem is they blow up. When I saw the concept bikes didn't think they'd live. From everything I read, on big tracks they're bombs. Oh but what a go kart track weapon they'd be...

    Love to read more about the blowing up. It's been on my "gotta build one" list for a while now.
    I was pretty sure those motors were pretty bullet proof. Damn.....
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.
